Problems with 2005 SRX hard to start after filling up with gas

Recommended Posts

My 2005 SRX just started doing this when I fill up with gas the car is hard to start up it.  I also noted that when the car is running and you put gas in it it will run ruff and shut off any ideas about this.

Any check engine light?

I believe this is related to the EVAP purge solenoid system

Couple of years ago I had two completely different family owned GM products do this in the same month. Fill it up with gas....no start / very hard start.  One was a 2002 Saturn...other was a 2009 Traverse.

It was the same problem on each.....a no code evap purge solenoid failure. 

Pretty sure both were under the hood and fairly easy to change.

I also had this  happen to my daughters Saturn; it was the EVAP purge valve.
